She admires Tina Fey and Julia Child and people who know how to get stains out of carpets.

  1. Dear Laura,
    Just finished reading your story “Violets” in One Teen Story. I’m in tears. So moved. It’s an amazing piece. I felt deeply for your protagonist. Read much of the story with my mouth agape at Aunt Sylvia’s nerve and the dad’s insensitivity. Wanted to kick Sylvia, too! Loved how you used Hamlet in the story as well. Enjoyed it from beginning to end and I’ll look forward to your novel. Congratulations on One Story. That’s a great accomplishment, as well.
